A word from Tiburon Fine Dining
Tiburon Fine Dining has quietly become one of Utah's premier restaurants. Tiburon is located in the south end of the Salt Lake valley in an unassuming building that formerly housed a fruit stand. But don't be fooled, Tiburon serves award-winning contemporary American cuisine ranging from pan-seared Beef Tenderloin with Foie Gras and Madiera syrup to Black Sesame-Crusted Ahi Tuna with Honey and Soy Marinated Carrots. The Crab Cakes consistently win best in the state and the salads are raved about by the locals. But it does not end with the food, service is always top-notch. Led by a staff that has been with owners since its opening in 1999, guests always feel welcomed in the warm and friendly atmosphere. And in the Summer with it's patio dining. Tiburon is the place to dine in the South Valley.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Tiburon prides itself on being special. The salad and sorbet before entree comes with dinner. I would recommend two appetizers and skip the limited menu. Less pricey too."

  • "Great food and ambiance. My favorite place for a intimate dinner with someone special."

  • "We ate here for our wedding anniversary. I ordered the special - Beef Wellington. It's a tricky dish to make, but mine was cooked to absolute perfection. My husband ordered the lame - also cooked to perfection. The crab cakes and the pork appetizers were amazing as well. I can't say too many good things about our dining experience."

  • "We've hosted several large dinner parties at Tiburon as well as more intimate evenings out - this place never disappoints."

  • "I didn't think it was possible for Tiburon to get better but it is. It was our anniversary and I wanted to go someplace special. In a word the meal was "fantastic." Ambience was quiet, the server/waiter was very attentive and most important the food was marvelous. Their bread and creamy spread is to die for, the salad was fresh and flavorful with caramelized nuts, slices of pear...makes it worth coming just for salad alone. My wife had the Albacore Tuna which was cooked to perfection and I had the Elk Tenderloins, juicy, delectable morsels of tender Elk, a savory delight. Then we had dessert, cheese cake with fresh blackberry compote. It was all heavenly. Will we go back...well, yeah."

  • "We tried this little hidden gem when we purchased a groupon. Everything was absolutely amazing from the seared scallops appetizer to the savory, incredibly tender slow roasted elk. We had a bottle of wine and the black sesame seed seared ahi tuna that was to die for!!! We then finished this perfect meal with the creme brûlée. Our complements to the very attentive servers and the chef who performed all this magic in the kitchen. Thank you for the best overall dining experience we've had in Utah in the 3yrs we have lived here."

  • "Tucked away in an unassuming neighborhood, I doubt I would have found Tiburon if not for Groupon. So glad I did; the food, atmosphere, service, & wine were incredible. We sat on the enclosed patio on a cold night, which was perfectly comfortable, & I will be back in warmer weather to enjoy the patio opened up. We ordered a bottle of Italian wine, the chicken breast, and the crab cakes as an entrée. The house salad is simple & delicious, but the dressing is to die for. I loved it so much I begged to buy a bottle to take home! The gelato between courses was delicious and very fresh. The service was impeccable, our waitress was the perfect combo of friendly and respectful of our privacy, and we really could not have asked for a better evening"

  • "Tiburon is one of my favorite Fine Dining restaurants. Food is excellent. Unfortunatley this night, the service was lacking. We were on a time line, and we were the 3rd table seated in the restaurant and ended up having to have our entrees packed in a to go box. Never had a 200$ to go box before. The food we did get served was excellent as always, but the other couple we took to dinner that night, said they wouldnt go back again because of the service."

  • "The food was excellent but slightly overpriced. Our drinks were fantastic and the service impeccable but a little expensive."

  • "Experiance was exceptional. It's not at all hard to recommend Tiburon to anyone."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Tiburon is one of our favorite restaurants for just plain good food. I recently had their special which was a beef Wellington. It was wonderful. The pastry and filet inside were done perfectly and the peppercorn sauce had soaked into the pastry making for the yummiest underside. My husband always has the elk. Also, wonderful. And the jalapeño cheese grits? Yum!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I took my husband for his birthday, which I noted in the reservation comments. I don't think any of the restaurants notice the comment section of these reservations. Anyhow....We had a very nice meal my husband had the lamb and I had the elk. We each tried both and although the lamb was very good, I loved the elk and would order it again. Both my husband and I loved the house salad and would go back just for that. They seated us near a large, loud group of business men and I would have preferred to be seated away from other people. (The only thing I would change) The atmosphere is nice, the wait staff was fantastic, we will definitely return."

  • "Our second time dining here and it didn't disappoint. This time I tried the New Zealand elk. It was awesome! I could have eaten another plate."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Great food! love the specials. We came and had no reservation, but the manager made room for us anyways :) Had a server ran out to our car to have us come back. What great hospitality!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "I've always wanted to try beef Wellington, but it has never 'just happened' to be on the menu anywhere I've gone and I'm not a good enough cook to make a mockery of it at home. I finally had the opportunity to try it at Tiburon (though I must mention it was a special, not a regular menu item) and it lived up to everything I've heard about it. I eat at Tiburon a handful of times each year, and I am always pleased with the overall experience. This is definitely a place I would recommend to anyone looking for a great night out."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Tiburon is always our "go to" restaurant - whether we want a great meal or if we have friends or business colleagues in town - always great."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The beef Wellington special was well prepared and flavored and fun to eat. The salmon was delicious with bacon accents that don't overpower. Tiburon is the rare restaurant that is expensive and worth it."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "the food is worth the high price and is very nicely presented. Unfortunately the restaraunt interior design is not conducive to an intimate evening. Plus some patrons are just loud and obnoxious."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Although we arrived 30 minutes earlier than our reservation, the staff was able to seat us almost immediately. The waiter(s) was/were efficient but not over-bearing. The tables were small and a bit uncomfortable as the laminate on the top under the cloth was pealing up. The tables were close together so noise was high but we weren't bumping into others. The food was delicious and different but high for this area. We had a polenta appetizer ($13) and the New Zealand Elk Steak ($41). Normally, we would not eat that much meat in a meal, but it was very good so we felt an gastronomical obligation to finish it. It was different and very good, but the ambiance was nothing special (see the 5 ALLs) and I've had comparable meals for less money."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "One of our favorite restaurants, always excellent. Food is fantastic as is the service. Crab cakes are delectable and all meat. It is a red meat lover's haven. Juicy, seasoned cuts cooked expertly. Great portions for fine dining as well. We keep coming back."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "I have passed Tiburon for countless years and we finally decided to go. It was fantastic! Worth every penny. My husband had the Elk and I had the Mahi Mahi, both were cooked to perfection. The staff was very attentive and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Used to be a great place but this was a big miss. Cold food, non-existent service. Hard not to give it another try considering how many wonderful meals we've had there but we're not likely to return."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We loved our meal. For special occasions, since it is a bit expensive, I had filet of beef, $36, excellent, with great wine reduction sauce. Wife had lamb, very good, $35. Entrees include bread basket and salad enhanced with roasted walnuts prepared with maple syrup. They honored me with a complimentary creme brulee for my birthday. Service was attentive, waitress knowledgeable. Butter served was enhanced with roasted garlic, shallots, very tasty. Tables are not too close, chairs comfortable if not special. Glass of 3 Bears cabernet was drinkable... Ambiance could use some upscale enhancement."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food is absolutely divine. We adored the pork belly & brie appetizer. The only problem was the temperature. I should mention that I do get cold rather easily, so I probably should have requested another table when they put us out on the back porch area so close to the windows. Easily solved by wearing my husband's jacket over my legs. Did not detract from the delicious food."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I love eating here. The food never disappoints and the service is excellent. I mentioned that it was my birthday and the server said dessert was on him. Love that!"

  • "It's a little pricier than we usually do- but this place is worth every penny! The elk and top serloin were AMAZING! I also loved the service. Perfectly timed- not overbearing and just attentive enough. We will definitely be coming back to this place for any special occasion we can think of. We absolutely loved it!"

  • "Often we have gone out to fine restaurants on Valentine's Day, only to find them crowded, noisy and hurried. Though Tiburon was busy, it managed not to appear overly so. The service was perfectly timed, the food wonderfully prepared. We had just about decided to skip the Valentine's ritual this year, but Tiburon provided us a relaxing experience, despite the demands of the night. Our only drawback was a semi-noisy table of eight. I would suggest keeping large groups in a separate room, or maybe adding a business casual dress code, in order to avoid noisy ski parties in jeans."

  • "The salmon was delicious and the lamb was so good my date insisted we share. Our waitress made sure we had everything we needed. The only issue i have is the web site would not allow us to make resevation after 5 or before 830, so we went at 5. There were plenty of empty tables when we finished our meal around 615."

  • "I was anticipating a romantic evening for two, but was kind of disheartened when ushered in to a small table with metal chairs and tile floors reminding me of an "patio" Mexican restaurant. The lights were low, and there were several diners, but the ambience is not what I would have expected in a "fine dining" restaurant. The food was presented to be high class, matching the price, but wasn't a good value. The server had the same "canned" responses to all customers when describing items like the salad, dressing butter, and dinner entrees. Sorry to say, my experience was underwhelming. If your going to drop over a hundred dollars for dinner for two ("no drinks") - I would go to Log Haven, where they don't just "think" their high class."

  • "Good food and service. A small menu that that gets old regarding new choices if you've been there a few times. Prices are a bit high but the seldom found elk entree is worth it."
